Saphan Phut Market | ตลาดสะพานพุทธ *** [CLOSED]

(map) This big night market lies at the foot of the Saphan Phut (Memorial Bridge) over the Chao Praya river.

It's a local market targeting low-budget but fashion-conscious youngsters, selling lots of jeans, clothes and shoes, both new and second-hand, bags, hats, jewellery, sunglasses and other accessories, coloured and big-eye contacts, perfumes, illegal DVD's, tattoo "shops" and there's a separate art section with cartoon artists drawing caricatures.

Surprising finds were live rabbits and a few stalls with shishas (water pipes). [Saphan Phut Bridge; night market; closed on Wednesday]
